Whether you come to church once a week, once a year, or once a decade, you are welcome at Bloor Street! Part of the United Church of Canada, Bloor Street is a congregation of about 150 people. Our church is located at Spadina and Bloor, near downtown Toronto and U of T. Due to building closures, we have shifted our programs online. All are welcome for Sunday services on Zoom at 10:30 am (room opens at 10am), and informal conversation after the service that we affectionately call (ca)Coff(on)ee Time. You can learn more about the upcoming service here.
What to expect
You can expect a friendly and inclusive congregation, thoughtful and relevant preaching, enthusiastic congregational singing, and inspiring choral music that might range from a setting of a plainsong chant to an African American spiritual. You can view past sermons here, and learn more about the United Church of Canada here.
We try to provide an inspiring and visionary centre for worship where we can help each other to discover, develop and nurture our spirit and faith. To do this, our goals are to foster worship which is inspirational through empowering preaching, both traditional and innovative liturgy, music and the arts; worship that is participatory, inclusive and supports all elements of the congregation; and worship that reflects our commitment to a theology which is liberating. We are proud to be an Affirming congregation – publicly, intentionally, and explicitly welcoming of 2SLGBTQIA+ folks – since each one of us is seen as a child of God.
What’s for Kids?
Every two weeks on Zoom before the Sunday service, children are invited to attend “church school” / Sunday School! Church school teachers Bob and Melissa provide fun and engaging activities based on a United Church of Canada curriculum, for developing their Christian beliefs. Each week there is an opening prayer, we light our Christ candle, check-in with one another, share a story or video, discuss what we learned, and end with an activity or game! Content changes each time and is related to the life and work of Jesus or the week’s Lectionary passages. You can learn more about the next session here.
